What are the final paycheck rules if I quit?

When an employee in Arizona quits, the employer must pay all earned final wages no later than the standard payday for the current pay period in which the employee resigned. For instance, if an employer pays workers every Thursday for the preceding week’s wages, an employee who quits on a Tuesday should receive a final paycheck on the next Thursday.

The employer should issue the final paycheck according to the normal procedures. Earned wages include overtime and commissions earned through the date of resignation.
